SUNDAY STAR

The SUNDAY STAR (ca. 1922-24) was a full-sized weekly newspaper devoted almost exclusively to sensational coverage of crime and scandal in Cleveland during the 1920s. Edited by Thomas J. Thomas, formerly of the CLEVELAND NEWS, it flaunted banner headlines in red ink on such topics as "Love Nest," "Vice Den," and "Auto Sheik." To a certain extent it made crime pay, lasting for about 3 years.
